Wild Rivers Announce “Where We Left Off” Tour + Partnership With Voices Of Our City Choir
November 19, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Wild Rivers will charm audiences across the U.S. in Spring 2020 with a 17-city headline tour, starting April 29th in Boston, MA and wrapping May 21st in San Diego, CA. The folk-pop foursome, who recently released their immediately anthemic single “I Do,” will be sharing new music in the coming months. The band also announced a new partnership with http://www.wildriversmusic.com, donating $1 of every ticket sold to the San Diego-based non-profit organization created in response to the current housing crisis. Tickets go on-sale Friday, November 22nd at 10AM (local time); visit for details http://www.wildriversmusic.com.
Of the partnership with Voices of Our City Choir, the band says, “After having spent the last few months in California, it has opened up our eyes to a massive homelessness crisis. We’ve had the honor of spending time with the Voices of Our City Choir, and we were absolutely moved by the community of people they brought together in such a beautiful way. Many of us in the band grew up singing in choirs, and we’ve witnessed first-hand the power music has to connect people. Getting to experience it again with Voices of Our City Choir was inspiring. We’re proud to do our small part in supporting their vital work.”
Wild Rivers first caught attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their acclaimed 2018 EP Eighty-Eight, which received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone Country, Earmilk and No Depression, and saw the band surpass 100 million combined streams on Spotify alone. Having supported artists like The Paper Kites, Donovan Woods, Jake Bugg and Alvvays, Wild Rivers has built a dedicated live following thanks to their charismatic stage presence as evidenced by sold out headline shows across North America, including major cities like New York, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto and more.
With exquisite harmonies, gorgeous melodies and emotionally charged, tightly crafted lyrics, the Toronto-based band deliver their unique blend of folk-pop songs that are at once inviting and infectious. Their sound is an amalgamation of their various influences, from contemporaries like The Lumineers, Bahamas and Kacey Musgraves to the iconic storytellers of the 70s, like James Taylor, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac.

About Voices of Our City Choir:
Voices of Our City Choir is a nonprofit organization based in San Diego with one goal in mind: Transform the perception and experience of homelessness through the healing power of the arts.
Since 2016, the choir has become an in-demand performance ensemble – with as many as 15 performances in a single month. We have been featured in a documentary, The Homeless Chorus Speaks, by filmmaker Susan Polis Schutz, which has aired on PBS over 1,500 times since its release date one year ago. We have performed live on Fox TV, KPBS, NPR, PBS NewsHour, as well as featured stories with HuffPost, Emmys.com, LA Times, The Village Voice (NY), San Diego Union Tribune and more. One of our greatest accomplishments to date is that the choir has helped 45 of our unsheltered members get off the streets and into safe shelter/housing. www.voicesofourcity.org
